Aren't profits the reason an individual or company goes into business?

"Exxon made 20 billion in profits in 2012 ???????? "

And Fedzilla made a couple trillion, and didn't produce a thing.

nS- Don't mean to correct you, but Mrs. Thatcher didn't write that letter. Wrong target , but the right idea.

Question ?

Why do we subsidize the oil industry to the tune of billions every year,

Exxon made 20 billion in profits in 2012 ????????

"This newspaper has on many occasions taken a stand against subsidies for solar and wind energy, two renewable energies that I feel very much need to be a part of our state and this country's energy portfolio."

Mrs. Thatcher, if these technologies were economically viable, they wouldn't need subsidies.

"The second reason is that the fossil fuel industries in this country already get huge subsidies and tax breaks from the federal government."

Please list any that a non-energy company doesn't get.

Ms. Thatcher, I couldn't agree more. The letter was well-written and completely correct. Maybe it can be reprinted each year like the prayers and poems that are in the Dear Abby, etc. columns.
